Description

A LIVE SCREENING FROM THE BRITISH LIBRARY

Think hearing is just sound waves hitting your ear drums? Think again.

Percussionist Evelyn Glennie’s unique connection to her music comes from having lost almost all of her hearing by the age of 12. She joins neuroscientist Colin Blakemore to discuss how we can all really listen.

This event was conceived by and first presented at Cheltenham Science Festival 2017. It will be subtitled by Stagetext.

Part of a Season of Sound, celebrating the Library’s sound archive. Audio installation supplied by Bowers & Wilkins.
